I just received an email from Peter at Helson. All Turtle dial colors are now available.

Black dialed version ordered. :-!

It usually takes a couple of days for their watches to arrive here in the US. I should have it later this week.

Just found one of these, yellow dial, on the bay. Coming in from "down under". I'll report when it gets here!
Let me know if you ever decide you want a black one. :think:

Found one here, in the Orange dial that I was seeking. #234 with the 9015, keeping great time so far. This one wears much smaller than the specs suggest. In fact it could be a mm or two larger on all aspects. I like the factory bracelet, but its just a tad snug on the last clasp hole (and with the extra link, a tad too loose). I may pop for a Staib for this one (had 20 mm, but sold it a few years ago....)

I just emailed Peter to see if I can purchase a longer piece of mesh to use on the bracelet. If anyone has a mesh bracelet that is too large, and wants to swap a short for a long piece - PM me!

No go on the extra piece of mesh, Helson only sells the entire bracelet for $125. If I were paying that, I'd add a few more bucks and get a Staib.
I opted to order a slightly longer, six-hole divers clasp from Strapcode. It should add 10 mm to the bracelet size, so I'm hoping that does the trick. Pix to follow.

I gave up on trying to modify the factory mesh to suit and bought a Staib brushed divers clasp strap. These offer adjustments on both sides of the clasp, and I always get a perfect fit.

Did anyone save the spec page at the Helson site on the Turtle? I always save the specs for any watch that I purchase, but cant find this one anywhere.
